The Lyon County History Center's vintage baseball teams will be playing against the Topeka Westerners on Saturday.

Emporia has two vintage baseball teams called the Howe House Griffins and the William Allen White Sox who do not travel. While our opponents the Topeka Westerners travel the country playing off against other vintage teams.

According to History Center Executive Director Greg Jordan, the rules are very different from modern-day baseball.


Emporia's opponent will be bringing enough players for two teams this year so the history center is hoping for volunteers to come in to play. The game will start at 1 pm at the Howe House with a watermelon feed for all players after the game.

If you are interested in joining the team show up to the event ready to play or contact Jordan at 340-6312
